YogaFest 2015: Summer of Hope

FREE YOGA. LIVE MUSIC. FUN RAFFLES.

Benefitting Homes of Hope Orphanages in India

Friday-Sunday. July 17-19

On Friday, July 17, Wilmington Yoga Center will kick-off it’s bi-annual YogaFest–a weekend of free yoga, raffles + live music–to benefit the girls at the Homes of Hope Orphanages in India, a 501(c)3. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will go directly to the Homes of Hope.

Since 2007, Wilmington Yoga Center has raised + donated more than $20,000 for the nonprofit. When we started raising funds for the girls there was just one orphanage which housed around 50 girls between the ages of 5 + 18 years old who had been rescued from the streets. To date, Homes of Home has provided shelter, food + education for more than 1,000 girls + is currently building its sixth orphanage. Thanks to Homes of Hope, many of the girls who have graduated out of its programs have received full scholarships for a secondary education + are now living independently.

Through YogaFest 2015: Summer of Hope, we strive to raise $2,600 to build a playground for the third orphanage in Secunderabad. Although the girls housed there do currently have all of their basic needs met, they don’t have a real place to play. With your help, we’ll be able to provide these girls a nine-component playground with a sea saw, large swing set, small slide, jungle gym, magic carpet, rocker + large slide.

Want to help us build a playground while advertising your business’ services or products to more than 500 members of the community + our social media following? We’re now accepting raffle donations from local + corporate businesses. Email Marketing Manager Jenny Yarborough at jenny@wilmingtonyogacenter.com for details.

Please join us Friday-Sunday, July 17-19 + thank you for helping us make a difference in these young girls’ lives!
